Reports are trickling in that Google has begun shipping the CR-48
to eager testers who've thus far been empty-handed after signing up for the units back in December. Could it be? Is the plucky prototype Chrome OS laptop getting a stay of execution after being declared all dried up
back in March? That's pretty unlikely, given the impending release of the Samsung
netbooks that we saw announced during Google I/O
. It seems a lot more plausible that the company is just exhausting the supply, so if you signed up late last year and haven't received one yet, we wouldn't recommend holding your breath.
